Equality, fairness and inclusion

The councils are committed to providing a service and culture where equality, fairness and inclusion are integral to all we do. As a core principle sealed within our corporate plans, it threads through our decision making and practice. Additionally, we will uphold an open, reflective and responsive environment in which we learn and adapt to the needs and inequalities experienced by those accessing or working within our services.

Residents, visitors, staff and Councillors should feel safe, valued and treated fairly. Diversity within our communities and workforce can generate fresh ideas and invigorate our approach, supporting us to recognise where we can dismantle barriers and build an equitable service.

We are committed to meeting our legal duties under the Equality Act 2010, along with supporting and celebrating the different communities which make up our vibrant villages and towns. The Equality Objectives and Equality, Fairness and Inclusion Policy below will be supplemented by an annual summary of our progress.

If you have any comments or thoughts around Equality, Fairness and Inclusion at the councils, or if your organisation may be interested in joining the Equality and Fairness Stakeholder Group please email equalitiesemail@lewes-eastbourne.gov.uk.
